Identification of Bilinear Severely Hysteretic Systems
An identification method is investigated on bilinear severely hysteretic systems subjected to a strong earthquake motion by means of the Extended Kalman Filter incorporated with a weighted...

Parameter Identification and State Estimation of Structure Models in Shaking Table Test
In this paper physical parameters and inner states of structure can be estimated from the input and responses in shaking table test by means of Extended Kalman Filter (SIEKA). Comparing...

Damage Assessment of Bridge Structures by System Identification
A method for the damage estimation of bridge structures under seismic ground excitation is developed based on system identification approach. The dynamic behavior of a damaged structure...

A Plant for All Seasons
Collins, Eckley and Detweiler describe a successful energy conservation program at the Willow Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant, Salem, Ore. By funding the $4.59 million project with a combination...

Anaerobic Filter Treatment of Septic Tank Effluent at Low Temperatures

Reliable Displacements from Integrated Quick-Release Accelerograms
A new baseline correction method has been developed which allows accelerograms collected during quick-release tests of full scale structures to be doubly integrated to displacements. The...

Real-Time and Off-Line Aids for Teaching Digital Control
This is a report of unique computer tools developed for teaching of the design of digital control systems at the University of Wyoming. The real-time components of the laboratory involve...

A Method for Design and Evaluation of Rapid Sand Filters Treating Secondary Effluents
The information presented in this paper provides a framework for analysis of rapid sand filter performance. Process variables are quantitatively related to filter design variables in a...

Full-Scale Evaluation of Filter Influent Chlorination and Ozonation
Ozone and chlorine applied ahead of pressure filters are compared to determine the effect of the chemical addition on the pressure differential across the filter bed. The study was significant...

Design and Construction of Slow Sand Filters
The belief that large area requirements are necessary is based on old concepts and contemporary engineering designs that overstate area requirements. Large area requirements result from...

Biological Phosphorus Removal Using a Fixed and Suspended Growth Combination: A First Year Appraisal
As an alternative to the activated sludge process for biological phosphorus removal, this paper discusses an alternative which avoids high costs of air supply and large suspended growth...

Peat Filtration for Oil Removal
An investigation was carried out to assess the potential of horticultural peat produced in Saskatchewan as a filter medium in treating five oil-in-water emulsions (standard mineral oil,...

Kalman Filter in Real-Time Hydrologic Forecasting: A Tutorial
The Kalman filter provides an algorithm by which measured streamflow can be used to update the estimated hydrologic state of the watershed as determined from the application of a hydrologic...
